Cliff Sunflower Visits Yavneh

Cliff Sunflower, the Beekeeper, recently came to visit Yavneh Academy with thousands of his bees. Yavneh’s early childhood students and first graders had the unique opportunity to role-play a honeybee hive. The students are now familiar with many new vocabulary words such as: abdomen, antennae, colony, thorax, proboscis, pollination, larvae, mandibles and pupa and they are now experts on the metamorphosis of honey bees. The students also participated in a Bee Workshop where they tasted different types of honey in honor of Rosh Hashanah, made beeswax candles, wore beekeeper gear, and watched live honeybees.
